Mindy Weiss

Party Consultant

Jay is not only an amazing photographer, he is my friend. He photographed all Three of my children's bar mitzvahs, both my sister's weddings, and continues to shoot my family celebrations throughout the years. He is very thoughtful in his photography and is very easy to be around with his quiet but endearing personality. We have grown up together in this industry and its always nice to have him on my team. xox Mindy Weiss

Kristi and David

Married in the Pacific Palisades

Jay is a true artist. His photos not only capture the big day, but all the emotions that come with it. Every time we look at our album, we can’t help but be transported back to our wedding both visually and emotionally. Jay’s talent as an artist is complemented by his character. Jay is one of the kindest humans we have met and working with him to select photos and create an album was a real joy. He also makes anyone who may be camera shy completely at ease in front of his lens. We can’t recommend Jay enough.


Andrea and Brett

Married at The Beverly Hills Hotel

Jay brings a high level of enthusiasm and passion to the job that translates to great work and amazing memories for his clients. We were lucky to have Jay at our wedding, as his calming yet confident demeanor set the perfect tone for our big day. The photos, and the end product of the album were simply spectacular.



Married at Vibiana

A picture is worth a thousand words is what we often hear people say. But Jay's Photos bring back the moment and the emotions felt when the photo was captured...Our Wedding Day was a dream come true and we hold dear to the memory of every moment through Jay's photos & video.... Love is one of the greatest feelings, and the way Jay & his staff captured it brought pure joy to our hearts... I look back at our Photos and relive the beauty of the scenery, the joy in the faces of our family members, our youngest son giving me away and our eldest son cutting a rug at the reception. But most of all the kiss that sealed the vows we exchanged before God and our loved ones!!!!

Jay, Thank u, you captured EVERY special moment!!!

Love, Monica & Shannon Brown


Sam and Alex

Married at The Beverly Hills Hotel

Jay is the most artistic, talented and skilled photographer out there. Of all the professionals we have worked with for our wedding, he is our absolute favorite. What he was able to capture for our engagement pictures we thought could never be beat until we saw what he did with our wedding pictures. He takes the most stunning straight forward pictures but also has an the capability to make one of a kind artistic shots that are out of this world.

His passion, vision and true love for what he does comes out in the picture itself, the photo editing process to ensure colors are up to his par and ultimately in the final album or stills that we cherish forever.

Jays energy is calming and reassuring in some of life's most intense moments and has become a real friend to us.

We were so happy with everything Jay has ever done for us, that he will be hired for all of life's milestones to come in our future- so long as he will have us.

Married at The Four Seasons, Beverly Hills

Planning a wedding is difficult and emotional. You want and need help in planning and in execution. Jay Goldman fits the bill. He is a fantastic wedding photographer. He has a vision and a point of view, but he listens to you and helps craft a visual experience that captures the essence of you and your guests. His artistic talent is matched by his professionalism. He does what he says, is on time, helpful, and magically finds a way to capture the event without interfering with the event. We cannot recommend Jay highly enough.

Jay Goldman is an artist with a vision that enhanced my wedding photos with creativity and an editorial flare. He and his team work efficiently and provided excellent photography for both my wedding and rehearsal dinner. I recommend him for anyone who wants an artistic, unique memory of the happiest day of their lives.

Kim Colwell Design | Transformational Interior Design

I have worked with Jay on two occasions, a shoot for an interior design project, a store I designed for Erica Courtney and then a shoot for a C magazine interview that I was a bit nervous about. I knew before both shoots that I loved Jay's work, but what struck me immediately in working with him was how at ease he made me. He was patient, creative and fun to work with and left me with the perfect shots in the end. I hope I have an opportunity to work with Jay again.


Darian Jennings

Lifetime Client

Jay Goldman has brought our family 12 years of so much joy with his photography. He joined our lives when we got engaged and has been with us ever since. He has captured every event in our lives through the lens of his camera. Patience and creativity were some of Jay’s best assets during each of our photo shoots. Jay exceeded all expectations we had for a photographer. He is always so professional, personable and overall a joy to have directing us on all of our special occasions. We cannot even describe how impressed we always are when we receive our proofs! The pictures are amazing. We always have a hard time choosing which ones to print.

Thank you Jay for helping to make every event in our lives so memorable.

Married at The Beverly Hills Hotel

The other night, Jennifer and I were sharing our wedding album with friends. They couldn't believe how well it captured the elegance of the event while highlighting the special moments we wanted to remember. We explained that Jay had the talent and vision to bring our joy to life on camera.

And when Jennifer gave birth to our daughter Beverly this past July, I emailed Jay immediately, hoping to set a time to shoot some of our first moments together as a family.
